Kate Middleton has a very unlikely school run buddy

Who knew...

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton regularly does the school run ever since her son George started 'big' school, but turns she comes across someone very unexpected at the school gates...

The mum-of-three is a very hands-on mum, often taking George and Charlotte for fun days out or taking strolls outside with little baby Louis.

She's also a regular on the school run at Thomas's Battersea, where Prince George is a pupil since last year, but it sounds like she has an unlikely buddy who also goes to drop off her child at the same school.

According to the Daily Mail, who spoke to an anonymous parent of a child who reportedly goes to the same school, there's another famous face at the school gates - a Victoria’s Secret model.

The source said: 'No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off. We have a Victoria’s Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her!'

We doubt Kate cares, as she cherishes keeping her and children's lives private, with another source also revealing to the publication that both the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge are grateful for the privacy that the media have given to their son.

'George loves it', a source said about how George feels about his school. 'He has really thrived there. And I know they [William and Kate] are immensely grateful to the media for giving him space. It’s a very happy environment for him.'

George started attending Thomas's Battersea school back in September, and was taken to school by his dad William on first day.

Mum Kate had to miss the big milestone as she was pregnant with baby Louis at the time and suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum - the same acute form of morning sickness that plagued her first two pregnancies.

But despite missing his first day, she's been there for her little one since - it was even revealed this week that she took her son George to school on the day after welcoming her third child, Prince Louis.
